Amounts to little more than a downbeat soap opera.

Top Critic

As maudlin and overly familiar as it is earnest.

Clichéd though it may be, this movie was clearly made with love.

L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

As Downtown plods toward its Christmas Eve-set climax, the film's tendency to OD on melodrama detracts from its grittier moments.

Top Critic

Earnest intentions can't begin to save this clumsy cautionary tale about teens and twentysomethings trying to survive on the mean streets of Manhattan.

Top Critic

A hackneyed melodrama partly redeemed by a cast convinced that it's performing Tennessee Williams.
